Big Apple Circus (City Hall Plaza)

The Big Apple Circus presents LEGENDARIUM in its annual Boston engagement at City Hall Plaza from Tuesday, March 26 through Sunday, May 12, 2013.

Travel back to when circus traditions were born and witness incredible acts that would have had the villagers chattering for days! The courageous mid-air flips and catches of a man on the trapeze! A captivating contortionist whose flexibility is as impressive as her steadfast poise! An agile, adept acrobat and her strapping suitors! A swaying wire act of sure-footed strength and stability! The dizzying delights of a daring inventor in his tumbling, twirling hoop!

And what circus would be complete without bumbling clowns who bring the spirit of timeless comedy?! It’s all led by an affable Ringmaster and the great Big Apple Circus Band playing the iconic songs of yesteryear! So run away with the Big Apple Circus and relive Big Tops of old in a memorable one-ring show for the ages!
